Education & Training

Clinical Informatics Fellowship

UT Southwestern offers a two-year Clinical Informatics Fellowship through the Department of Pediatrics to physicians who are certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) or board-eligible in one of the ABMS primary specialties. The fellowship provides a broad clinical informatics experience and is supported by the Clinical Informatics Center.

Master of Science in Health Informatics

The Master of Science in Health Informatics program gives students the interpersonal, cognitive, analytical, and applied skills needed to thrive in the field of health informatics. Students build on skills obtained through their previous education in medicine, health, computer science, or information technology, and gain knowledge from educators with firsthand insight into systems and system challenges.

Nano courses

The Lyda Hill Department of Bioinformatics provides hands-on, in-depth training in theory and application of bioinformatics methods and tools through one- to two-day courses. Topics include computational image analysis, machine learning, gene expression, and big data analysis techniques. The nano-course series is open to all members of the UTSW research community. Academic credit may be available for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

Clinical Informatics Research Colloquium

The Clinical Informatics Center hosts a monthly Clinical Informatics Research Colloquium to highlight the important work done by researchers at UT Southwestern and their colleagues. This is part of our effort to bring clinical informatics, research informatics, and other data and informatics scientists together to foster exchange of ideas, collaboration, and development of grants, papers, and novel projects.

Texas Health Informatics Alliance (THIA)

The University of Texas at Arlington, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, and UT Southwestern formed the Texas Health Informatics Alliance (THIA) in 2021. The Alliance aims to build informatics ties across Texas through partnerships in research, data, policy, education, standards, and workforce development. THIA hosts an annual conference in September that brings together researchers, developers, health professionals, information management professionals, data and information scientists, and students to share, collaborate, and showcase groundbreaking work in health informatics.
